India Squad Asia Cup – Will Deepak Chahar be included in the main team? The Chetan Sharma-led selection committee will take a big decision in the next 24 hours. The Indian cricket team has already arrived in Dubai to play in the Asia Cup 2022 starting on Saturday. After proving his fitness and form, Deepak Chahar is now on the selectors’ radar for a promotion from the stand-by to the main team. The selectors will take a final decision on Chahar within the next 24 hours. Meanwhile, Chahar’s CSK bowling coach also spoke in favor of his inclusion in the Indian squad for the Asia Cup: Follow all Asia Cup 2022 live updates and IND vs PAK live score updates with InsideSport.IN
“If Chahar gives you that early wicket, you have to look at him as first choice. But, there are a lot of bowlers and a lot of competition. You want a bowler who takes wickets with the new ball. If Bumrah and Shami are not available, Chahar makes the arrangements. Balaji added on Deepak Chaha’s situation.
With doubts over his fitness, the selectors chose Avesh Khan ahead of Chahar when announcing the preliminary squad for the Asia Cup. After seeing Chahar prove his form and fitness, the selectors are now having second thoughts about including him in the squad.
A member of the Indian selection committee told InsideSport before the start of the Zimbabwe series that Chahar’s return to form could lead to promotion.
“Obviously, you couldn’t have picked him straight away for the Asia Cup when he came back from injury. We have the option to change a player before the tournament.
“We are keeping a close watch. If he does well, gets his rhythm back, we’ll consider it. A member of the selection committee told InsideSport.

Chahar proved his fitness and form in the recently concluded ODI series. He played in two ODIs and proved an asset to the team in both. He has taken 5 wickets @ 20.4 in 2 matches. Judging by the current situation, Chahar’s inclusion in the Indian squad hangs in the balance as the T20 World Cup is just around the corner.
Balaji filed the case on behalf of Deepak Chahar: According to Balaji, Chahar should be in the Indian squad for the Asia Cup.
“In the UAE, where the opposition needs new ball skills to get into the batting early, what you want is a wicket with the new ball.
“If Chahar gives you those early wickets, you have to look at him as first choice. But, there are a lot of bowlers and a lot of competition. You want a bowler who takes wickets with the new ball. If Bumrah and Shami are not available, Chahar makes the arrangements. Balaji added on Deepak Chaha’s situation.

Why Deepak Chahar can be promoted to the main team?
- India is going to UAE with only three expert Simar.
- But apart from Bhuvneshwar Kumar, both Arshdeep Singh and Avesh Khan are inexperienced.
- Moreover, Avesh is very expensive in T20s, making it difficult for him to get a place in the playing eleven.
- Deepak Chahar was overlooked from the main squad for the Asia Cup as he has not played any competitive cricket in the last six months.
- Deepak Chahar is considered a great asset in the powerplay along with his batting skills.
- Before getting injured, he became a reliable batsman and even won India a match in Sri Lanka.
It is not yet clear whether Chahar has been asked by the BCCI to go to Dubai. The picture will be clear before the end of the day today – will Chahar be promoted to the main squad or sit out from Asia Cup 2022.
